We raise awareness and funds to combat the causes of homelessness


Since 2010 I have raised almost £10000 for good causes by participating in the Marathon des Sables and IronMan triathlons. As the big 50 looms I wanted to take on a new challenge and at the same time raise money for an excellent cause. The challenge itself will be long and arduous but compared to the daily challenges faced by the people of Nepal where I will be visiting it will be minor.   In 2015 Nepal was struck by 2 devastating earthquakes. Many villages were completely flattened. Our team of 7 are helping to rebuild a village known as Thangpalkot1. It costs only £1600 to rebuild a house! Every penny that is raised will go directly to rebuilding houses (no middle men). Please dig deep. Your donation will make a real concrete (pun intended!) difference. 

Thank you so much

About the charity

The Fine & Country Foundation has been created to help combat one of the largest social issues in the UK – homelessness. Last year, the Government estimated around 2,414 people sleep on the street on any one night across England, a rise of 36% over three years. Often the reasons for homelessness are misunderstood, with many blaming the individuals for poor life decisions and carelessness. The reality is: people become homeless for a whole range of complex and overlapping reasons that cannot be avoided, such as family breakdowns, mental or physical health problems or debts. Solving homelessness does not only involve putting a roof over people’s heads, it is also trying to tackle the root of the problem and asking the question: why did they became homeless in the first place? The Fine & Country Foundation is dedicated to bringing together all Fine & Country agents in over 300 locations worldwide to raise awareness of the causes of homelessness whilst supporting homeless charities.
